Full-scale functional tests at appropriate temperature, pressure, and mass flow conditions are necessary for developing and qualifying components such as:

  • Valves
  • Safety valves
  • Safety valve pilots
  • Control rod drive mechanisms
  • Fuel assemblies.

For endurance tests investigating long-term behavior and wear effects, water chemistry must be adjusted to match the reactor coolant conditions.

We operate a comprehensive test facility in order to offer full-scale testing capabilities for boiling water reactor and pressurized water reactor nuclear components.
